Walk around in a 3D splendid house from the ancient Pompeii
 
02:45
By combining traditional archaeology with 3D technology, researchers at Lund University in Sweden have managed to reconstruct a house in Pompeii to its original state before the volcano eruption of Mount Vesuvius thousands of years ago. Unique video material has now been produced, showing their creation of a 3D model of an entire block of houses. After the catastrophic earthquake in Italy in 1980, the Pompeii city curator invited the international research community to help document the ruin city, before the state of the finds from the volcano eruption in AD 79 would deteriorate even further. The Swedish Pompeii Project was therefore started at the Swedish Institute in Rome in 2000. The researcher in charge of the rescue operation was Anne-Marie Leander Touati, at the time director of the institute in Rome, now Professor of Classical Archaeology and Ancient History at Lund University. Since 2010, the research has been managed by the Department of Archaeology and Ancient History in Lund. The project now also includes a new branch of advanced digital archaeology, with 3D models demonstrating the completed photo documentation. The city district was scanned during the field work in 2011–2012 and the first 3D models of the ruin city have now been completed. The models show what life was like for the people of Pompeii before the volcano eruption of Mount Vesuvius. The researchers have even managed to complete a detailed reconstruction of a large house, belonging to the wealthy man Caecilius Iucundus. “By combining new technology with more traditional methods, we can describe Pompeii in greater detail and more accurately than was previously possible”, says Nicoló Dell´Unto, digital archaeologist at Lund University. Among other things, the researchers have uncovered floor surfaces from AD 79, performed detailed studies of the building development through history, cleaned and documented three large wealthy estates, a tavern, a laundry, a bakery and several gardens. In one garden, they discovered that some of the taps to a stunning fountain were on at the time of eruption – the water was still gushing when the rain of ash and pumice fell over Pompeii. The researchers occasionally also found completely untouched layers. In a shop were three, amazingly enough, intact windows (made out of translucent crystalline gypsum) from Ancient Rome, stacked against each other. By studying the water and sewer systems they were able to interpret the social hierarchies at the time, and see how retailers and restaurants were dependent on large wealthy families for water, and how the conditions improved towards the end, before the eruption. An aqueduct was built in Pompeii, enabling residents to no longer having to rely on a few deep wells or the tanks of collected rainwater in large wealthy households. The work behind the 3D film and a discussion on the credibility of the reconstructions are presented in an article, published in SCIRES Italy. Istituto di Scienza e Tecnologie dell'Informazione and the Humanities Lab at Lund University have contributed to the development of the material and 3D work. ### Article: Reconstructing the Original Splendour of the House of Caecilius Iucundus.

Seven years ago divers discovered the oldest known stationary fish traps in northern Europe off the coast of southern Sweden.

Adapted Trombe wall now used for both heating and cooling buildings using renewable energy sources
 
01:36
In Egypt, fossil fuels account for 94% of all energy. There is a need for innovative energy solutions to reduce carbon emissions that can also be used in rural communities which do not always have electricity. Researcher Marwa Dabaieh from Lund University in Sweden has come up with a way to adapt the so-called Trombe wall – a passive solar building design from the 19th century – to not only heat but also cool buildings, while drastically reduce associated carbon emissions. The new design is now being tested by locals in Saint Catherine, Egypt. Learn how the Trombe wall design works: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_2rEjzi-QRc

Cecilia Holm: Lund University Diabetes Centre/EXODIAB: Obesity and lipotoxicity
 
04:44
Free fatty acids, derived mainly from the large triglyceride stores in adipose tissue, are the quantitatively most important fuel in mammals. Fatty acids also constitute signaling molecules in a variety of cell types, e.g. a lipid−derived signal appears to be necessary for stimulus−secretion coupling in pancreatic beta−cells and fatty acid derivatives are ligands for a group of nuclear receptors, i.e. the peroxisome−proliferator activated receptors (PPARs). In agreement with this dual role of fatty acids, most cell types contain small triglyceride stores, from which fatty acids can be mobilized through the action hormone−sensitive lipase (HSL) and possibly other lipases. Lipid abnormalities may be the primary pathogenetic factor in the development of insulin resistance and insulin secretion defects, the two hallmarks of type 2 diabetes, with excessive storage of triglycerides in non−adipose cells as the common precipitating event. The project can be divided into four major parts. The first part involves studies into the structure−function relationships and 3D structure of HSL, the rate−limiting enzyme in triglyceride hydrolysis. In the second part mechanisms of catecholamine−induced lipolysis as well as novel signaling pathways involved in lipolysis regulation are studied. The third part involves the generation and characterization of cell− and animal models with over− and underexpression, respectively, of HSL and other key components in lipolysis regulation to address the role of these for insulin secretion/beta−cell function, skeletal muscle and liver function, adipogenesis and spermatogenesis. The fourth part is a recently initiated line of research, which involves exploiting functional foods with beneficial effects in relation to insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. The project increases the understanding of the mechanisms underlying development of lipid metabolism disorders, in particular diabetes and obesity, and may provide new concepts for prevention/intervention in these diseases. The studies on spermatogenesis may reveal novel mechanisms behind male sterility.
